Counsellors for schools countrywide: Minister

Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has made preparations to recruit teachers as student counsellors for schools countrywide. Accordingly, about 1,000 teachers would be recruited this year, and they would be provided with adequate training, he added.

He was speaking at a press briefing held in Kuliyapitiya, Kurunegala, yesterday.

This would be aimed at redirecting children who have gone astray back to the right path by changing their ways of thinking, the minister said. He said that especially students who were being abused by either their parents, neighbours or classmates needed confidants.
